Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets will join with customers to support local nonprofits during the National Day of Giving on Nov. 30. Each Weis location will match customer donations up to $500.
Customers are invited to donate to a local nonprofit, chosen by the associates at each store location, by adding $1, $3, $5 or $10 when they check out at registers or by rounding up their grocery bills.
“As a locally focused company, we believe in giving back to the communities we serve. Our CEO Jonathan Weis, his family and our company’s associates have been long-time supporters of local good causes,” said Ron Bonacci, Weis Markets VP of advertising and marketing. “We are proud of our store teams who have chosen their charities and remain grateful to our customers for their continued support of these good causes.”
More than 150 local non-profits are participating in Weis Markets’ Day of Giving program. The local organizations chosen by Weis locations are primarily food pantries, emergency shelter services and animal rescue organizations.
In addition to the local store donations, the company is presenting $10,000 donations to two local charities to be announced on Day of Giving.
